The football world was sent into a frenzy on Tuesday night when Arsenal fan Laura Woods revealed her pick for the next Tottenham Hotspur manager.
Woods, who is a regular on Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday, sent a tweet suggesting that former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte should replace Jose Mourinho at Spurs.
The tweet quickly went viral, with Chelsea fans in particular reacting with shock and disbelief.
The suggestion was met with a mixed response from Spurs fans, with some welcoming the idea of Conte taking over at the club, while others were less than impressed.
Conte, who was sacked by Chelsea in 2018, has been out of work since then and has been linked with a number of jobs, including the vacant managerial position at Tottenham.
The Italian has a proven track record of success, having won the Premier League title with Chelsea in 2017 and the Serie A title with Juventus in 2012 and 2013.
He is also renowned for his tactical acumen and his ability to get the best out of his players.
However, there are some who feel that Conte’s style of play is too defensive and that he would not be the right fit for Spurs.
Nevertheless, the prospect of Conte taking over at Spurs has certainly got people talking and it will be interesting to see if the club opts to make a move for the Italian.
In the meantime, Woods’ tweet has certainly sent Chelsea fans into meltdown and it will be interesting to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks.
